How to make it

  • PEEL the potatoes if you wish. Or peel half and leave the other half with the skins on.
  • CUT the potatoes in half and plunge them into a large pot of rapidly boiling water. Add the whole garlic cloves and cook, covered, until the potatoes are very tender - about 25 minutes
  • DRAIN the potatoes and garlic well and turn them into a warm serving bowl.
  • USING a potato masher, mash them coarsely, adding the olive oil a little at a time.
  • WHEN all the oil has been added, taste and add more salt if needed and an abundance of black pepper.
  • SERVE immediately.
